Daily Teaching for Friday, September 21st

Everyone gets sick and everyone dies. Much of our struggle with illness and injury results from a deluded notion that we shouldn’t get sick or die. To make things worse, some simplistic religions have taught that health and wellness are rewards we receive for being faithful. This practice has created immeasurable suffering because it causes the sick and dying to believe they have done something wrong. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Illness and death are parts of life, nothing more or less.
